END. x Bodega x adidas Consortium Sneaker Exchange “Boro Denim” Pack

by Henrik Buzzi

The upcoming collaboration between END. and Bodega, as part of adidas Consortium’s Sneaker Exchange, showcases both brand’s incredible knowledge of contemporary clothing, with a keen eye for detail taking precedence when it came to selecting the sneaker’s materials. Dubbed the ‘Boro Denim’ Pack, the upper on the Iniki Runner and the 3-Stripes on the Haven are reworked in a patchwork, extending the theme of repurposing and ever-evolving roles. Design influence is taken from Boro denim and the Japanese Sashiko stitching method, originally used for repairing jeans but used increasingly for decorative purposes in contemporary menswear. A constant design element throughout the pack is the gum sole which rounds off the “crafted” look and feel of both silhouettes. The END. x Bodega adidas Haven and Iniki Runner are both perfect for the sneaker enthusiast who is inspired by the past but constantly looks to the future. Dropping July 1 at END.
